Is Peli being tempted over to the light-side? Use the Tamiya Peli. Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the potential of the Tamiya.

BTW I had to look those quotes up in order to bastardise them, I'm not that big a nerd.

For what looks like a small area, this is a great layout. Love all the jumps.

A belt would have to be more efficient than all those gears!

Look forward to seeing the Habib paint job

Check out the banked elevated corner.

These tight indoor tracks look gruelling.

those indoor tracks are pretty insane... poor scando bastards don't have much choice since they can only race outdoors for maybe 5 months of the year.

the wife's home town in sweden has a 1/8th gp offroad club. most of their meets aren't at the track, they are at someones house where they just sit around looking at each others cars, talking about how many months it is until they can race again

gotta love Aus

Hope we can chip away at a few more questions. It's been good so far. I want to go and take a pic of all his cars.
